NZME and Sky Sport in new partnership

New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) and Sky TV have joined forces to bring more of the country's best sporting content to even more Kiwis.

For the duration of March, NZME will be broadcasting two of Sky Sport's flagship shows on its digital and radio platforms.

Starting today, Sky Sport News will be simulcast on and via iHeart Radio from 6.30pm every weeknight. Presented by Goran Paladin and Kate King, Sky Sport News covers every angle of the day's biggest sports news stories through expert analysis and exclusive interviews - including with leading NZME talent such as D'Arcy Waldegrave and Gregor Paul.

Sky Sport's hugely popular weekly rugby magazine show The Breakdown will also be livestreamed every Tuesday night from 8.30pm on, Radio Sport and iHeart.

NZME managing editor Shayne Currie said he was delighted to be teaming up with Sky, to help grow audiences for both businesses - and increase interest in myriad sporting codes.

"NZME and Sky are both proud broadcast and digital businesses, with proven track records of world-class coverage of sport. We're proud to be teaming up to showcase and expand on the best sports coverage in New Zealand," Currie said.
